I have been unable to find anything regarding my problem on these forums. I don't know if there is anything similar, but i've just been a little frustrated at this problem.
After a long period away from homeworld, i saw it in my local EB for $20 (Australian) I thought, yeah! so i bought it, brought it home and installed it. Before i did anything else, i got the latest patch and patched the game. Then i sat back to enjoy the game.
It all started up nicely and ran through the little intros and then... the game stopped. I thought it a bit odd, so i restarted my computer. To no avail, the game stopped again. I couldn't even do anything. I was stuck in the main menu. The mouse wouldn't move, yet the music didn't even skip a beat. I thought the game may just be warming up. Eventually the mouse unfroze and i was able to access the options menu. But it froze up again when i tried to select anything. Even when i did finally get into the game, it would stop. It is like horrendous lag. I've gone through my display settings repeatedly, tweaking and adjusting, but it still doesn't want to run. I've even gone through my other system settings and altered things there. Running in compatability mode doesn't seem to work, as running it under comp. mode for win 9x, it doesn't even register the CD, and yes it is legal. Any help would be most appreciated, as this problem has me at my wits end.
My specs are :
WinXP Professional, AMD 2000XP, 768MB Ram, DX 9, 120GB HDD. Geforce 4 Ti 4200 64MB. Thanks.
